Ronda's attempts at a comeback are just pathetic. Kind of like her mic work.

Random observation: the pageantry of wrestling is really important to me. I've been working through the Stardom archive, and just recently gotten to a point where they've started stepping up their uploading game- now they have (subtitled) promos and I think most of the entrance themes. I already liked Stardom but it's amazing how much easier it is to get invested when Oedo Tai has a theme song to kinda flesh out their characters, or I can understand even the Japanese-style five second "I will do my best today!" promos.

You'd think that would keep me invested in WWE since that's like the one thing they do well still!

So my choices are wasting 30 minutes of WM on a HHH/Batista match or having him show up at Double or Nothing likely to either clown or go over a younger talent.

Choices.

I have no idea who he would face at Double or Nothing. Cody?

I would really hope WWE wouldn't be foolish enough to try and build a match with two part-timers off of maybe 1 or 2 TV segments and fill a spot on the card with another long, boring match to pad time in a show that needs culling rather than padding. But I know that, deep down, that's the complete opposite of what WWE is about anymore, so I should expect this to happen and just accept it.

Who cares if a younger talent doesn't go over blockbuster movie star Dave Bautista at Double or Nothing? They get the publicity of Dave Bautista and whoever faces him gets a rub from being the guy to face Dave Bautista.

Triple H facing Batista does absolutely nothing and is a complete waste of time.

Oedo Tai's theme song is just an unrelated cover of a Hatsune Miku song though. The song doesn't even represent the era that Oedo Tai's gimmick is based around
Lots of these indie acts use random popular songs.

Batista has been on the record saying he wants to face Triple H at WrestleMania to end his career, and that he's pitched it multiple times and they keep offering him other matches and he says no.

But I don't think Batista needs to worry about them paying him tons of money. He has expressed in the past that he turns the other matches down because he had a bad experience with storylines and they didn't really use him right last time he was around, so he just wants it his way with an easy storyline between the two.

Keep in mind Batista said that a long time ago IIRC before he was disappointed about misuse.

Like I think right now any Batista Triple H mania match would be a throw together excuse for Batista to job, which I don't see Batista doing unless he's super overpaid.

I'm not saying he would be above losing but I don't think he wants to just come in as a token attraction to lose ala Sting. Maybe if build for it started earlier

He said all of this in the same podcast he discussed being disappointed by the misuse.

Okay, so here's a question that has been kicking around in my head since Jakyl posted the news story:

How much money do you have to offer Dave to consider working a match that isn't the only one he's said he would be interested in having for the last few years? Like, I know we're talking Jaguars ownership, but at some point, that match stops being a fiscally responsible move, right? They can't be expecting a big draw on PPV, surely. And with the tickets completely sold out, this sort of money move only serves to increase PPV draw.

This makes a lot of sense to me, and I hadn't considered it. There are so few free agent marquee names out there right now that would create attention from WWE eyes that I definitely can see what you're talking about.
